In response to #2:
Yes, xgrass does require Motif to compile.  If you have statically
compiled binaries then you can run in X without Motif.  If you 
want graphical menu-driven grass without the Motif requirement,
try looking into tcltkgrass.  This requires you have tcl and tk
on your system, but they are available in the public domain.

Good Luck,
